When they were married in April 2005 it was announced that Camilla would be given, what some saw as the lesser title of Princess Consort and not Queen Consort when her husband became King.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Camilla said she believed hard work was necessary to keep the effects of ageing at the door.

Charles does not turn 70 until November next year.
